meme stolen from #funny


I’m not one to join a protest mob. I’d have avoided a crowd even before the pandemic but I support the protesters. The govt. ordering businesses to close because of a virus is tyranny. And ordering healthy law abiding people to self quarantine is tyranny. Do you trust the govt.? Can you tolerate your rights to be taken? I’m not afraid of “the rona.”

Just my two cents. Feel free to disagree or opine, as always.

  1. Well, this is a tricky one. A couple of thoughts spring to mind: one is that part of any government’s responsibility is to endeavour to keep the people safe. Another is that very nearly half of UK citizens (who voted in the referendum) voted to stay in the EU; yet the government decided to push Brexit ahead. Still, I don’t call that ‘tyranny’. Our so-called ‘democratic’ systems are broken, it’s true: but they’re still better than true tyranny.

  2. People are dying in their thousands. Our government in the UK dithered and didn’t do lockdown for five weeks. Our death rate is one of the highest. Woukd I rather go and have a haircut or stay in? The sensible answer is stay in. I’d rather be six feet away than six feet under! Making it a political issue like Trump is doing is just mad!

  3. The influenza pandemic of 1918 began in the U.S. Army doctors begged the government to shut down the training camps for soldiers. The government refused, and as a result the U.S. ended up shipping sick men who died en route to France, all the while infecting the entire transport ship. The virus moves with people – keep people from moving, the virus runs out of hosts and dies, and society gets a chance to work on recovery that much faster.

  4. Speaking as a grateful nurse, I appreciate people staying in so the emergency rooms werenโ€™t overrun and our healthcare workers were protected. I most definitely understand the other viewpoints but this was mine.

  5. I dunno. I’m not afraid of getting it….I think I’d get through it….it’s just the part where they say 9 out of the 10 people who have it never know they had it and go around spreading it everywhere. That’s what keeps me at home. Now I live in a tiny tourist town in the deep South and almost half the people here think it’s a joke; don’t practice social distancing and run around without masks and gloves. They agree with You completely. And although our numbers in Georgia are going up; our Governor is skipping steps to open the state back up. I guess we’ll see. I sure hope people who feel like You do (a few of my very dear friends agree with You) are right. But personally, I’d rather feel like a mask-wearing over cautious idiot than cause harm to others. It’s such an odd time and I get why there are SO many varying opinions. Sending hugs Your way! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. weird how unprepared our govt. was for this. One thing about this lockdown thing is that if they can lock us down now they will do it again. We can’t let the govt. get away with it, They can’t be trusted. I doubt the facts we hear. The one about being a carrier but not showing symptoms sounds far fetched to me. I do sympathize with nurses though, so it’s a difficult subject and I’m no expert. I don’t have a mask. I’m going to pick up supplies to make them for nurses this afternoon. I finally got the right group that supplies the materials and I’ll sew for free. I’m not the cautious type. But I also don’t take a lot of unnecessary risks. Thanks for your comments. Stay safe!

      1. Yeah…Lord help us if we’re unprepared next time something like this comes along. It’s been beyond crazy! And I think You and my very dear friend Lois would get along swimmingly! ๐ŸคฃIt’s super sweet of You to make masks! I still haven’t done it. Stay safe and Thanks for creating an open forum! This will make You laugh: Lois was going on about all manner of stuff regarding the virus I don’t agree with the other day. I’m more live and let live and let’s just avoid the subject….but she’s more of the I’m going to bring You to the light!!!! Right now!!! sort of wiring. It can be a bit exhausting at times because, seriously, not a bone in my body cares what she believes or wants to change it…but I can only take so much and now and again will voice my disagreement. It’s friendly and funny but she does get very passionate and starts kindof yelling….NOT at me….just there’s A LOT of energy behind her beliefs….so she was on a tear and I’m just sitting here (over the phone) shaking my head, rolling my eyes and praying for her to exhaust herself. In the middle of her run she said, “And You know, if people are going to be that stu…..”, we both knew she meant to say stupid but caught herself. Long pause. We both burst out laughing. I said, “It’s ok. I already know You think I’m stupid…..You were saying?” I think the conversation dissolved to other things shortly after that. Thank God! ๐ŸคฃHave a great weekend! Cheers!!! ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

      2. You have more patience than I do. I had an old friend that was so political and I’m not that into politics. She kept on and on about Trump when he got elected and I didn’t vote for him either, but when she called Trump voters knuckle draggers I knew I couldn’t take 4 years of her rants so I stopped communicating with her. I don’t miss her. She’s a bully. Thanks for your story!

      3. Thanks for Yours! And…Goodness gracious! Ack! Yeah….I would’ve had a hard time with that as well! ๐ŸคฃMy friend usually doesn’t name call and will most often stop talking about it when I ask her to. AND she easily laughs at herself, us, the world…so that gives it a quality of ease. ๐Ÿ˜…Life! People! Opinions! Oh my!!! ๐Ÿคฃ
